I would be very interested to hear from anyone with experience of Oak
Dieback in Quercus robur in Uk or Europe.

There has beeen a problem over the last 10 years in England with mid
rotation oak dying. The problem appears complex with climate, fungus and
flat head borer (beetle larvae) being possible causes/contributors. Recent
observations indicate that larvae of previously very rare beetles may be
accelerating oak decline once weakened.

Any observations including proportion of crop in decline/dead, age, soil,
recent weather, location appreciated.
